that heralds the start of a new campaign. the bomb had been left under a seat. and predictably on a city center bus, there were many passengers. they became the many injured. the bus bombing came as they were cleaning up after a missile strike in a suburb of tel aviv. an air raid siren had saved the lives of the elderly couple who call this apartment home. bus bombings by compairosn are so terrifying because they come with no warning. this was the first such attack of its kind. this time round, only a ceasefire would give it any chance of being the last. >> woodruff: residents of gaza endured another barrage of air assaults today before the ceasefire was called. john ray of independent television news was on the ground in the territory today. >> reporter: after a week of air strikes, gaza has been pummeled by the most intense barrage yet. under the plumes of smoke and fire, there's a sports stadium israel claims is used to train terrorists. news of that terrorist attack in tel aviv was proclaimed from the minnerettes. sweets were handed out but the celebration soon gave way to worry about israe

death comes all too frequently now in syria. today it was twin bombings in the capital city of damascus. people ran after the first explosion and that's when the killers detonated a second bomb. nearly 50 people died. there is no word on who is behind the attack. it is but the latest in the bloody battle between syria's government and its rebels. rebel fighters claim to have shot down two government aircraft within the past 24 hours. that helicopter war planes shelling people on the ground. the government shelling its own people. they have access to antiaircraft missiles. that would be a change. the burning wreckage of the military jet as well as its injured pilot apparently unconscious fox news cannot confirm the report. >> 29 people crashes in the indian notion. and tops our news around the world in 80 seconds. the jet liner went down small ireland nation off the southeast coast of africa. you can see the tail sticking out of the water. he noticed a plane leaking fuel like a faucet after takeoff and alerted the crew. the pilot tried to land at nearby airport but had to ditch it in the
